“Lynn’s vision is to be recognized as one of the most innovative, international, and individualized small universities in America.”

Lynn 2020: The Strategic Plan for Lynn University

“We haven’t heard of you either” was Lynn University’s humorous catch phrase during the 2012 presidential debate. It’s a label hardly fitting the college Lynn is today—even in jest.

Lynn began its pursuit to be recognized as an innovative, international and independent college with the launch of Lynn 2020 in 2005. Since then, it has received national recognition in these areas plus more. The university has consecutively been named an Apple Distinguished School, a Great College to Work For by The Chronicle of Higher Education, and a U.S. News & World Report Best College, among others.
